Recipe by diner524
I got this recipe off of the package that contained 2 mini angel food cake pans (4 1/2 X 2" ). I made 1/2 of the recipe for one cake and it turned out perfectly and would serve 2-3 for one cake. I served it with fresh strawberries, ice cream and whipped topping and it was a hit.

This recipe interested me because I always use cake flour and powdered sugar plus regular when I make my recipe. So I wanted to see how the texture of this cake compares to mine. I was able to get 3 mini cakes out of this recipe. My mini pans are a two piece angel food and the measure 4x2. I'll come back tomorrow after the taste test and give my rating. Well, sorry to say we did not like this at all. It was dry and tough. I don't know why but when I mixed dry ingredients into whites, it was hard to get them to mix for some reason. Needless to say I'll stick with my Recipe #12591. Sorry for the 1 star, I guess I'm spoiled from the real thing. Made for 1~2~3 Hits ~ September 2010
